Shout shooting stars!

Slip your cool blue eyes 

under blankets of warm skies.


Soften the bruise on your heal 

by means of mud caked on the trail.


Shout to fill the black hole in

your mouth with shooting stars,  

for the brilliance of your words

are not lost in the universe.

    This is so nice! It makes me want to go out and sleep in a tree. I especially love the last thought.
